Jack Tyndale-Biscoe - Piano


Music literally came knocking on the door for Jack Tyndale-Biscoe. At age 7, Elizabeth Waterhouse (one of the pioneering Suzuki Violin Teachers in all of Britain), gifted him his first violin and musical instruction. Winning various local competitions in London, such as the North London Music Festival, he went on to play both collectively and individually at historic venues such as The Barbican, Queen Elizabeth Hall as well as the Royal College of Music.

However, after moving to Spain, it was at age 15 that he transitioned to the piano, being primarily self-taught. It was not until a few years later when, successfully auditioning for the Australian International Conservatorium of Music (AICM) in Sydney, that his formal piano training commenced. There he studied both contemporary and classical piano. He received from AICM a Diploma in Piano Performance (P.dipIMEB,) and Piano Teaching (AIMEB {T}.) Since then he has focused primarily on Piano Performance and Composition, with live performances in Málaga, Madrid, and Barcelona, presenting Spanish solo piano repertoire, placing particular emphasis on Albéniz, Granados and Mompou.

In 2014, he immigrated to the Unites States and commenced a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance under the tailored tutelage of Dr. Stephen Thomas at Brigham Young University-Idaho (BYU-I). During this time, he has performed on numerous occasions at the University and national state competitions, receiving the top prize for the Concerto competition, with the Grieg A minor Piano Concerto.

In aim to pursue added training, in 2017 and 2018 he attended the Rebecca Penney’s Piano Festival in Tampa, Florida. There he participated in lessons and master classes with world-renowned teachers from Juilliard, Eastman, Indiana University, as well as many other prestigious musical institutions in the United States. Jack T-B owes much to the intense musical instruction received in Florida, which has included prize-winners of the Van Cliburn, Gina Bachauer, William Kapell, Cleveland International and Paloma O’Shea Santander competitions.

With great passion for the art of piano teaching, resulting from his unique background, Jack T-B became an Associate Lecturer/Professor of Piano Instruction at BYU-I, before deciding to further his studies at the Royal College of Music, in London, currently in his final year of a Postgraduate Performance degree with Russian pianist and professor, Dina Parakhina.

In 2020, as a result of the pandemic, Jack Tyndale-Biscoe launched the innovative LondonMusicMoments series, which explores the rich and diverse musical heritage found in the city of London through music and speech. It is this idea, the power that music and words have to portray profound artistic experiences, which led Jack to create the company MELODICTUM. Jack Tyndale-Biscoe serves currently as CEO and Artistic Director of MELODICTUM in its initial stages.

He has performed on numerous occasions in concert venues and halls across Europe, the United States and Australia with recent live performances and prizes including: a top prize at the Kings Peak International Music Competition (USA), St. James Church (Holland Park, London), Exhibition Road, (Knightsbridge, London), the Royal College of Music’s Amaryllis Flemming Concert hall and West Parry Room, St. Barnabas Church (Kensington), and featured live performances of Albéniz’s Iberia Book One on WUSF Radio 89.7 FM, Classical Radio.

He is grateful for the support of Canan Maxton and Talent Unlimited UK in their promotion of London-based artists. During the 2021-2022 season, Jack will be presenting/performing a unique program at concert venues across London, and recording his debut album entitled: "The Divine Spark of Bach".
